Sending my sympathy to the family. The Smiths lived on "my" street during my high school years. George was my age, and Delores a year older. Harold was a nice person.....sorry to hear of his passing.

I am so sorry to hear of Smitty passing. I just heard about it today (Dec.27th). I would have attended his services. He was a classmate in school, and I remember him as a very good person. So sorry for your loss.
